Le Cabaret Travesti
"Le Cabaret Travesti" is one of the photographic series of Ryszard Kisiel. Those archival photos come from the sessions organised by Kisiel and group of his friends in 1985-86, times of anti-gay campaign "Hiacynth". Participants of those sessions created their own world, full of mesmerising alternatives to grey socialist reality. They cross-dressed and played with their gender identity, using humour, irony, and subversion. "Le Cabaret Travesti" is a unique visual testimony of Polish queer and alternative culture.
